the Palestinian National Authority



1 On June 14, 2007, President Mahmoud Abbas dismissed Haniyeh's government and appointed Fayyad to form an emergency government. However, Haniyeh and Hamas maintain that these actions were illegal and that Haniyeh is still the Prime Minister. Haniyeh still exercises de facto authority in the Gaza Strip, while Fayyad's authority is limited de facto to the West Bank.

The Prime Minister of the Palestinian National Authority is the head of government of the Palestinian government.

The Prime Minister's Office was created in 2003 to manage day-to-day activities of the Palestinian government. The position was created because both Israel and the United States had indicated their refusal to negotiate directly with Yasser Arafat.[1] The executive structure of the government still resides in the President of the Palestinian National Authority.

Term

The Prime Minister is appointed by the President of the Palestinian National Authority and not directly elected by the Palestinian Legislative Council (parliament) or Palestinian voters.

Unlike the Prime Minister's office in many other nations, the Palestinian Prime Minister is not required to be a member of the legislature while in office. Instead, the appointment is made independently by the ruling party. The Prime Minister is expected to represent the majority party or ruling coalition in the parliament.
